River Rescue divers continued to search the area and waded through the flood waters to check the remaining tents. No other people were found.

The Mon Wharf was initially closed on Thursday because of a flood advisory.

The River Rescue team also traveled around Point State Park and along the Allegheny River and found two people. They did not need to be rescued.

All three people were taken to a shelter until the water levels fall.
